Editorial Reviews

Advocating the idea that universities can and should play a larger role in the economic development of local and regional communities, contributors discuss the economic role of higher education in terms of the concept of the "knowledge society," the global economy, small and medium-sized enterprises, and comparisons between countries. Other contributions provide case studies on such themes as relations between universities and communities in Northeast England; the impact of a new university on its community; Salford University's historical industrial partnerships; and the relationship between a traditional civic university and its regional community. Written from a British perspective but should prove instructive to a wider audience. Distributed by Taylor & Francis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
